What is a Beachbody Coach?

Becoming a Beachbody Coach Changed My Life
It’ll be 6 years this September that we decided to take a leap of faith and start our own business as Independent Beachbody Coaches, hence the birth of NC Fit Club. Had I known at the time how much social media and YouTube would change and grow our business, I may have chosen a different name. But so far, people seem to realize that just because we’re based out of North Carolina, that doesn’t mean we can’t coach them. In fact, most of the people we work with aren’t even local to us…so I guess they don’t mind the name!
The Day I Took the Leap of Faith
I remember Monica (my free Coach at the time, more on that HERE) asking me for 6 months to become a coach. Why? Because she saw something in me that she knew “wasn’t normal”. She saw me lose vast amounts of weight with Power 90 and P90x and encouraging others to do the same and she knew that I had what it took to help others.
So why did it take me 6 months to say yes? I wish I knew. I would probably say a lack of faith in myself, the fear of a networking business, the idea that I could actually own my own business didn’t seem realistic (see first reason). There’s a 100 excuses I came up with and that I hear from others everyday . It makes me smile, because when I get the “I don’t have time” and “I’m not a good salesman/woman” lines from people, who I think would help change others lives, I think “You have no idea”.
It’s Not Sales
First off, the business has grown and changed so dramatically over the last 6 years for us, we finally have an understanding, through much personal development, that it’s not about sales…it’s about relationships. I tell people all the time, if you think this is sales, then you’re right….it’s not for you.
It’s taking the time (and not that much) each day to just do the simple tasks that it takes to be successful. It’ s like your workout, it’s like your parenting, it’s like anything in your life that you are good at or want to be good at it. If you’ll be consistent and true to yourself, you be so much more to so many people. You’ll experience a freedom of living the life that you knew you were meant to live. A life without regret, a life of amazing opportunity and a life that will touch people in a way you never knew possible.
Who’s Destiny Do You Hold in Your Hands
The answer is not just yours, it could be many others. In the video I talk about how Monica changed my life. She had no idea at the time what she was about to do for me by partnering with us. This business is about developing true relationships with people, who when they commit, you help to change their lives through instilling in them a belief that they can do it. How? By figuring out the real reason for why they want to become healthier, what the weight they want to lose truly represents. Maybe it’s insecurity, maybe they don’t want to end up dead at the age of 45 like their parents. Maybe it’s to get off blood pressure or cholesterol medication. Whatever the reason, you’re their support, their cheerleader and most importantly their friend.
There are so many stories and so many people who’s lives we’ve been lucky enough to witness amazing change in, that would not have been possible without our Beachbody Coaching business.
What if I told you that when I was almost 100 lbs. overweight, that Monica was almost halfway across the country in Phoenix, Arizona while I sat in Charlotte, NC? You’d think, how could a lady in Phoenix help me in Charlotte? It’s simple, because she cared. She cared enough to plug me into a support system that works. She surrounded me with people via Facebook and Message Boards (yes back before FB was popular) and she took the time to talk to me each week and keep me on track and accountable to my goals.
What if you could do that for someone else? What if you could create something that gave your family a new lifestyle and a healthy one at that?
And most importantly, WHAT IF, you only did it to save money while you worked on yourself? That’s fine too!!! We have amazing programs, you may not be ready to coach and just want to work on losing weight yourself! That’s fine, but why not save money while you do it?
Are you ready to take a leap of faith? Or do you want to live a life of regret? Who’s destiny do you hold?
